BOWLAND BETH: THE LIFE OF AN ENGLISH HEN HARRIER. By David Cobham.

Illustrated by Dan Powell. "I am often told that my film of Tarka [the Otter, by Henry Williamson] played an important role in getting otter hunting banned in England and Wales in 1980. Can this dramatised version of Beth's life awaken similar emotions in people' hearts and compel them to stand up and explore in the strongest terms the illegal persecution of the few remaining breeding hen harriers in England? I hope so". Film-maker and naturalist, David Cobham has taken the life of a real hen harrier, tracked by satellite and studied hour by hour, and used this as the basis for this dramatised biography. The hen harrier in question, christened Beth, hatched on the moors of the Forest of Bowland, and wherever else she might have travelled, always returned home to the Bowland Fells.
